More on the best job ever

In the last 24 hours, I was paid to...

Write a review of an Arabic music CD

Build a motion detector from a Snap Circuits kit

Make a poster of "Library facts you might not know":
1. A library card is FREE
2. You do not need a card to visit the library or use the wifi
3. If you had a card as a kid, any fines on it were removed when you turned 18

Help someone figure out why the online game website she likes wasn't working very well

Recommend a new author for someone who likes J.D. Robb and Clive Cussler

Sign a form certifying that one of our disabled patrons can't read regular print and should thus be able to receive services from the Braille and Talking Book Library

Look for a book about "how satellites work" for an adorable little girl

Read about how other libraries handle it when a famous author dies and someone else continues their book series

Tell someone that audiobooks exist!
